E71 WLAN and Bluetooth MACs

Wireless MAC, originally uploaded by Dexte-r.

If you are using E71 (or other E and N Series’ devices) you may encounter issue with identifying MACs (hardware addresses) for built-in WLAN and Bluetooth modules. Don’t worry! It’s very simple. If you want to connect your phone with your wireless router and it uses MAC filtering try these codes following with green button.

*#62209526# (for WLAN MAC)

    Widzę, że masz E71 z polskim menu. Czy mógłbyś podać jej Product Code? Ja zamówiłem już E71, ale w UK i zapewne będzie bez polskiego menu i znaków na klawiaturze, więc czeka mnie reflash.

    Dziękuję z góry i pozdrawiam.

    I assume you are trying to connect to your home based wireless network. It would be good if you get the following details about your N/W before you proceed. These are typically available in routers admin login.

    N/W SSID Name, What kind of security it implements and any keys you would need to authenticate or encrypt/decrypt.

    A. Basic Settings
    ==============
    1. From home/stand-by screen goto Menu > Tools > Settings > Connection > Access Points

    2. Options > New Connection Point

    3. Provide a connection name.

    4. Data bearer = Wireless Lan

    5. Network Name = Your network’s SSID (if its not-hidden you can click “Search for Networks” otherwise enter it manually)

    6. Network status = Hidden / Public (it should correspond to the router setting)

    7. WLAN Network Mode = Typically for secure n/w its “Infrastructure”

    8. WLAN security Mode = (it should correspond to the router setting, typically its “WPA/WPA2”)

    9. WLAN Security Settings = (keys corresponding to your secure n/w. Note this option varies based on the option chosen in step 8 above.)

    10. Home Page = (you can leave it blank).

    A. Advanced Settings (Typically required in case of Static IP)
    =================

    11. Options > Advanced Settings > IPv4 Settings

    12. If its static then click Option > change and enter the IP address.

    13 Otherwise if its dynamic (DHCP based) then this setting should be set at “Automatic”.

    14. DNS Server = Typically its Automatic.

    * 2 months ago

    Source(s):
    1. Once you are inside “Menu > Tools > Settings > Connection > Access Points” click ” options > help”.
    2. I set it up myself within 45 seconds.

    hi,

    I tried to setup my office wlan on e71. our wlan is wpa-psk and key is 64 characters. surprisingly i can only enter 63 keys – mobile stops taking input after 63rd key is entered.

    can I change settings else where to get it to accept 64 characters?

    on the other hand it has setup fine on my home wifi which has shorter length key

    any tricks?

    My new Nokia E71 with Symbian OS is working fine for Internet Navigation with 3G, Open WIFI connection and at my home WIFI Network configured with WEP encryption.

    But I do have problems by trying to connect to the Corporate WIFI LAN Network, My company uses WPA/WPA2, TKIP with EAP “Protected EAP (PEAP)” which uses a Internal Authority Certificate “Secured password (EAP-MSCHAP v2” by loading an in-house file *.cer that MS Office as well as Smartphones with Office Mobile can load/install the file and within the Autorithies Certifies the Encription mode is presented to be selected.

    Into my Nokia E71 Symbian there are many Authorities Certificates (Baltimore, Entrust.net, Equifax Secure Global, Global Sign, GTE Cyber, Valicert, Starfield, GoDaddy, VeriSign, Thawte Server, Nokia Root, MIDP2, 260 Online, SymbianA,B,C) but CAN NOT FIND A WAY to install an additional certificate… In Office Mobile appears “COMPANYNAME” you select that and as far as you are an Network User and Passwork user you can connect to Intranet Applications as well as navigate into the Corparate Network.

    As far as I select all the WIFILAN options WPA/WPA2, with EAP “Protected EAP (PEAP) –> (EAP-MSCHAP v2) its prompts a Certification Error because the missing *.cer file.

    Does anybody knows how to add an extra Authority Certificate into the Symbian Nokia E71 phone to get WiFi LAN Corporative connection?

    Thanks in advance for your help and answers…

    Hello,
    How can I change my WLAN MAC address ? There has to be a way to rewrite the OS NETWORK STACK so when needed to use a different MAC address not the one that’s been burned on the device.

    Just a quick reply to the person who was trying to add a certificate to use with the EAP plugins.

    I giot a certificate file from my administrator at work ( a .der) file) I connected my E71 via USB and transferred the file to my phone. It ended up on the memory card in the others directory. I moved it over to the ‘other’ directory on the phone.

    I then used the phones file manager to locate the file, clicked on it and it installed itself. I weas then able to see it in the long list of certificates.

    Sadly I still can’t connect to my LAN at work but I think I am quite a lot closer to the solution.

    Hi! I was wondering if there was some way to connect my E71 to my computer through a wifi signal? (not Bt or USB)

    thanks 🙂

    • 23 Dexter August 12, 2009 at 9:26 pm

      If you can share you network connection from PC via WLAN, the phone should be access the Internet, also remote syncing, for example with ovi.com etc. I haven’t heard about using WLAN for PC Suite.

    hi there Cadum, I’m going to take your issue into the new year. I have encountered exactly the same limitation at 63 char’s! Luckely I have two different AP’s at home, one of which has just a 29 char’s key. Problem there is the signalstrength, so I still want the 64-one to connect also, without having to reset all other 9 connected machines to a less strong key. So please give me some help on this issue too…
